Drop Shadow Advanced

Gimp 2.8 required!

This plugin produces a complex three-part drop shadow from a selected layer. Ideal for light-on-light text (or anything else).

* Super-smooth shadow algorithm
* Three customizable shadow layers (umbra, penumbra and veil)
* Works with both alpha and masks, shadows are created as masks
* All layers (including the source) are put into a separate group, so no mess created

Find and Replace Text (Layer Names AND Text Layer contents)

Inspired by the following plugin:

Latest version: 0.0

There's some differences with the plugin this was inspired by. Namely, these are the following changes:

  1. Restricting Find/Replace to just the linked layers.
  2. Whether the search and replace actually is a regex.
  3. Find and replace in text layers too. Currently there's no way to preserve the markup, BUT, it can work around layers that have don't have text content, but do have markup content.
  4. Restricting replacements to the first x occurances in a layer's name or in a text layer's body.

Line Border 2

A python conversion of my script-fu Line border script ( This version uses python-glade dialogs. It allows to create smaller and much clever input dialog and integrate much more functions. On other side, due to missing support of glade dialogs from Gimp, there is not possble to run this script in batch mode.

Current features:

Warp Text

This script will warp text to fit inside a four-point "Bezier patch". The bezier patch is created with the Path Tool by first placing an anchor where the upper-left corner of the text should go, followed by three more anchors running clockwise around the perimeter.

Batch watermarking and resizing

This plug-in is designed for batch watermarking and resizing of image files. It lets you choose the directory which contains the images, the file extension, the font, the copyright text and the options associated with the processing. Useful for photographers who upload a lot of photos on the web and don't want to watermark every single file individually. The resulting images contain between one and four instances of the copyright text (selectable as an option).
